Bukhārī, Muḥammad ibn Ismāʻīl, 810–70; Muḥammad ibn ʻAbd al-Hādi Sindī̄, –1726 (commentary).  [work in Arabic, title page romanized as] al-Juzʼ al-awwal - [al-rābiʻ] min Kitāb Abī ʻAbd Allāh Muḥammad ibn Ismāʻīl ibn Ibrāhīm ibn al-Mughīrah ibn Bardizbah al-Bukhārī al-Jaʻfī, raḍya Allāh taʻālá ʻanhu wa nafaʻanā bi-hi āmīn. Wa-bi-hāmishihi Ḥāshiyat al-Sindī bi-tamāmihā wa-taqrīrāt min sharḥay al-Qasṭallānī wa-Shaykh al-Islām, raḥimahum Allāh taʻālá. Misr [i.e., Cairo?, or Egypt generally]: Dār al-Kutub al-ʻArabīyah al-Kubrá, no date [ca. 1880]. 4to (29.5 cm, 11.5"). 4 vols. I: 244 pp. II: 220 pp. III: 220 pp. IV: 212 pp.

Commonly called the Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī, these four volumes contain the Sunnī Ḥadīth Canon, a collection of traditions, teachings, and sayings of the prophet Muhammad that, with accounts of his daily practice (the Sunna), constitute => the major source of guidance for Muslims apart from the Koran. In this late 19th-century edition, the Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī is accompanied by the later commentary of ʻAbd al-Hādi al-Sindī.

We gratefully acknowledge the help of Heather Hughes (Van Pelt Library, University of Pennsylvania), Randal S, Brandt (Bancroft Library, Cal Berkeley), and Imadeldin K. Abuelgasim (Moffitt Library, Cal Berkeley) in properly identifying this book and in achieving a proper romanization of the title. Printed on highly acidic paper, never bound, sheets folded into gatherings of 4, except the last gathering of each volume which is in 2; uncut and unopened. Chipping and some flaking, as must be expected given the quality of the paper; paper heavily browned and with occasional marginal tape repairs. Housed in library phase boxes. Ex–Haverford College, deaccessioned in 2017, with blind pressure-stamps in upper margin of title-leaves; in that institution's phase boxes with call number labels, bookplates, and tattle-tale stickers. Overall very good (and very well protected).  (41447)   Please RESHELVE This.
